Some sources list October 29 as Mr. Bakshi's date of birth
Despite his fame as an animator, Bakshi really wants to be known as an artist of the canvas type. "What I really want to do is paint pictures--that's the big secret. I've been doing it for 20 years." --From Cinefantattique, August 1997.
"'Spicy City' is the same thing (as 'Fritz the Cat'). The stories are very political. They're about our problems without being overt about it. They're about what the future holds for us, good and bad. They're also about the changing of America, the burgeons of people, the great ethnic mix we are which I love. I go down to Houston Street all the time. Look what they did to Times Square, you want to shoot yourself." --Ralph Bakshi quoted in Cinefantattique, August 1997.
